Afridi announced his final decision

Shahid-Afridi-5Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi denies all the rumours of his comeback to ODI series. He said he won’t take back his retirement from 50-over game.

Afridi, who left for Dhaka with a few other players including Ahmed Shehzad to play the lone T20 international against Bangladesh, said he has no intentions of going back on his decision to retire from the ODIs. “My decision is final. We have to understand that the new players will take time to adjust and settle down and we have to give them proper time for this,” Indian media reported.

Previously, many media outlets speculated that Afridi will make a comeback in 50-over game after Pakistan faced a humiliating defeat against Bangladesh. However, Afridi refuses to take back his decision.

Afridi will now lead the Pakistan’s T20 squad. He said, “We have some exciting players in our T20 squad and my aim as captain now is to build up a strong outfit. We lost the one-day series to Bangladesh will not make a difference to us and we want to win this lone T20 game,” local media reported. (Source)
